Better Food Wirral aims to bring together residents, food businesses, community organisations, local government and health institutions to build a better food system.
 
WHY A Food Plan?
We know that food poverty in Wirral is on the rise. Over 6,000 people have used the Food Bank since it was set up in the borough last year, and at least 5% of people on a low income report skipping meals for the whole day. At the same time, we know that food can be a powerful mobiliser to unite families and communities. In other words, although there are lots of problems associated with food, there are also plenty of opportunities to:
  • Reduce food poverty
  • Boost health outcomes
  • Improve the local environment
  • Create new job and economic opportunities for local businesses
  • Strengthen communities
